Please welcome Michael Wong of Chinatown Crime Watch.
Chinatown Crime Watch is a CCBA program established in 2005 under the administration of Roman Chan to fight the increasing occurrence of robberies, assaults, and purse snatchings in the Chinatown community.
Under the leadership of Michael Wong and Gilbert Ho, volunteers patrol the streets of Chinatown daily, in snow and rain, armed with nothing but a walkie talkie and a blue Crime Watch vest.
Compared to other programs, the Chinatown Crime Watch program is a great success and is modeled by other community crime watch programs.
HoneyGrass formed in the summer of 2005 when two of the founding members met at the River Valley Bluegrass Festival in beautiful Northern Ontario. The group showcased at the 2007 International Bluegrass Music Association’s “World of Bluegrass” conference in Nashville, and won the "Most Promising Band" of the year award at the 2007 Central Canadian Bluegrass Awards (CCBA). They received three CCBA nominations in 2008 and again in 2009. Their debut CD "She's Running Wild" was released in June 2008 and received a very favourable review in the December 2008 issue of Bluegrass Unlimited. HoneyGrass has also contributed original work to each of the award winning 2008 and 2009 "North To Ontario" compilation CDs, which receive extensive international airplay. They have been playing at major festivals in Ontario and New York State - and are visiting In The Country to talk all about their music and to share some songs from their album.
